Learn to Make Pan Tumaca at Home

Are you a fan of savory breakfasts, but just don’t have time to prepare more complicated dishes such as bacon and eggs in the morning? Well, have we got a great idea for you!

Pan Tumaca, a classic Spanish breakfast dish that is served in homes and cafeterias throughout the country, is easy to prepare, savory, and delicious. Let’s learn how to make it!


  • 2 slices of fresh bread
  • 1 tomato
  • 1.5 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Start off by preparing the tomato which will be the base of this tasty toast. Wash it, cut it in half, and then use a grater to liquefy and separate the body of the tomato from its skin. Do this process into a bowl.
  2. Once you’ve done this, use either a toaster or a small frying pan with a little bit of olive oil in it to toast your two bread slices.
  3. When the bread is toasted, rub the garlic cloves on the sliced bread to give it a little bit of garlic essence.
  4. After this, you’ll want to take the tomato from the bowl and spread it generously and thickly onto the garlicky toast.
  5. Finish it off by adding ¾ of a tablespoon of olive oil to each piece of toast and adding a pinch of salt, to taste. Enjoy!
